Miller named DCT student of the week
BY LINDSAY WEAVER
Jessica Miller has been named student of the week for DCT (Diversified Cooperative Training). Jessica is a Salon Coordinator at Hairmasters in Danielsville. She has been working there for six months.
"DCT has been beneficial because it has allowed me to be more responsible and helped me realize my career goals," said Jessica.
DCT helps high school students experience jobs and what the working world is like. It gives a chance for them to get an idea of what profession they might want to go into.
As an employee Jessica uses the health club and tanning rooms when she likes and gets her hair done free.
Jessica was chosen for DCT student of the week because she is very dependable and works really well with people. Jessica would like to become a cosmetologist and take over her mom's salon someday.

Johnson is determined to succeed
BY STACIE SMITH
What's it like to take on more responsibilities and pressures than the average teenager? Just ask Kim Johnson, a very involved and hardworking senior with the potential to make an outstanding future for herself.
Kim participates in several clubs. President of NHS (National Honor Society), copy editor for the annual staff and vice-president of the Class of 2000 make up the offices she holds. Kim also takes part in FBLA and has recently been named a DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) role model. She was voted "Most Outstanding" by her senior class.
Kim has also received many honors. She recently was offered a $2,000 scholarship from the Athens Human Relations Council for composing an essay on how Martin Luther King Jr. has influenced people in this time. Kim will be attending a banquet for this honor on Jan. 14.
Although Kim is considering many colleges to further her education, she has not yet decided between Mercer University, Florida AMU and the University of Georgia.
In her spare time away from all the stress, Kim enjoys talking on the phone, singing, reading and going out with friends.
Through her years spent in high school, Kim has gained more from her classes than just education.
Teachers that have been there for her are very significant to her.
The teachers that she says have influenced her the most are, "Ms. Karol Scarborough, because she is easy to talk to and always has good advice," and "Ms. Stephanie Harrison, because she has helped me so much with my scholarship essays." Kim values their opinions and appreciates their guidance through high school.
Kim is truly an intelligent and unique individual. Her accomplishments and talents make her shine.

Books are donated to high school library
BY LINDSAY WEAVER
Recently, librarians Carolyn Leachman and Peggy Thompson received the donation of two books. Sons of Confederate Veterans donated "Weep Not For Me Dear-Mother" by Elizabeth Whitley Roberson and "Forgotten Confederates," compiled and edited by Charles Kelly Barrow, J.H. Segars and R.B. Rosenburg. "Forgotten Confederates" documents black Southern Confederates.
Frank Gillispie, a member of Madison County Greys Sons of Confederate Veterans, presented the books. He briefly told about the confederate history.
Local libraries are given books about Southern history so people can know more about this time.
